Our class novel for this half term is Viking Boy! The book is packed with action; this exciting story is a fascinating insight into the world of the Vikings. Gunnar is the son of a Viking chieftain, living peacefully on his family steading with his mother, father and their people, until they are raided by Skuli and his Wolf Men, who raze his home to the ground and take his father’s life. Gunnar swears an oath to avenge his father’s death and save his mother from Skuli, but first he must run to save himself. We are excited to see if Gunner will get his revenge.

As a class we are going to have the opportunity to write a range of genres including a recount, letter, and a newspaper report.
